About me



Name :Maarten Steurbaut
Nationality :Belgian
Date of Birth :April 12, 1968
Status :3 children, but apparently never had a wife :-(
Diploma :
  • Bachelor in Mathematics (1990)
  • Industrial engineer (electro-mechanics) (1992)

Favorite LEGO toys/themes :LEGO Technic / Model Team
My fascination with LEGO began...when my brother got a LEGO locomotive back in 1972 (do you remember the blue locomotive with the battery box on top of the train motor ?)
LEGO is great because...you can build anything with it
My biggest disappointment :Before graduation, I contacted the LEGO Company for my thesis (the release of the Technic Control Center inspired me to build some kind of robot controlled by a computer). I know that similar projects are done in several countries with graduation students. In Belgium they refused to cooperate. They simply told me I had to go abroad if I wanted to go on with this project.

My favorite Non-LEGO Toys :
My favorite Movies & TV :Science Fiction, detectives, action-movies,...
My favorite Music :Level 42, Wally Badarou, Brand X, hits from the '80s, UB 40, and lots of black music (Earth Wind & Fire, Kool & the Gang, Parliament, Gap-Band,...)
Weirdo-info :I can turn my upper-eyelids inside out, I can write in mirror handwriting, and I can do a horizontal handstand.
